Healthy Benefits of Blueberry  

    How many fruits can boast about strengthening your brain function, amplifying your immunity, and shielding you from cancer? If a fruit could boast.




    This incredible, edible delicate blue powerhouse is packed with powerful nutrients which is why  it is named as one of the top super foods. And it can replace artificial or sugary sweets with natures sugar, being the better sugar for you and more natural to human digestion.

    Well, again, since the blueberry can not boast, let's review what benefits nutritional science has discovered about blueberries and what that means to your overall health!

Potent Antioxidants 

    In existing in living your life alone, with or without a terrible diet, your body’s cells produce free radicals. The causes are due to artificial foods and environmental stressors. This results in the potential of causing, in men (for example), prostate cancer and in general (for everyone) arthritis, and heart disease.
    The magic in this particular berry and the reason it is classified as one of the most powerful food is because of its potent and high level of antioxidants. Antioxidants shield your body against the damages caused by free radicals.  

Preserves and Enhances Brain Function 

    There are 2 nutrients found in blueberries that protect and increase the functioning of your brain. Phytochemicals and flavonoids. The phytochemicals can reverse age-related deficiencies such as short-term and long-term memory loss. While flavonoids promote blood flow to the brain and its electric signal pathways resulting in improved memory and concentration.  

Regulates Sugar Levels 

    When it comes to sugar content, 15g of sugar can be contained in each serving of 150g of blueberries. This may sound like a lot of sugar for 1 cup of blueberries! Unlike processed sugars blue berries provide anthocyanins. This is the chemical compound that gives blueberries its deep rich purplish blue color. Anthocyanins improve insulin sensitivity which lowers the risk of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. Moreover, it can also reduce a spike in blood sugar by blocking certain digestive enzymes.   

Super Immunity

    Regular exercising, healthy sleeping habits, a healthy diet, and a dose of blueberry snacks or smoothies can help empower your immune system. The CAMP gene plays a significant role in our bodies immunity and it is already there, in your body, there to help defend your health.

    CAMP stands for cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide and blueberry can increase the activity of that gene through the help of pterostilbene. Flavonoids abundantly existing in blueberry have anti-inflammatory properties.  


With that said, please consider adding this delicious fruit to your regular health diet. And if you have any questions you can send me a message!


To your health!
